From editor or global species database
Identification Van Soest et al. (2021) were able to make some slides and a SEM stub of a small fragment of the type specimen, and confirmed Hajdu et al.’s (1995: 7) discovery of anisochelae I in low quantity and with reduced shape. These were not mentioned by Bergquist, so it remains somewhat uncertain whether they are proper. The anisochelae II are similar to those of M. (Ae.) sulevoidea. Van Soest et al. consider the present species as doubtfully valid, because toxas were sometimes rare in some specimens of M. (Ae.) sulevoidea. If the anisochelae I mentioned above are proper to the sponge, there is an outside possibility that M. (Ae.) cavernos will prove to be a junior synonym of M. (Ae.) sulevoidea, but lack of toxas precludes this conclusion. [details]

Spelling Bergquist (1965: 170,172) misspelled the subgenus name twice: as Aegagrophila (in the caption of the species description) and Aegrophila (in the discussion). [details]
